Hi all! Lots of exciting news for the Harmony community, so please forgive the length of message
We’ve been working INCREDIBLY hard to get product together, build as we sell, sell as we build - get revenue to sell new features, sell new features to get revenue, the startup life.
Our sister company, TF Labs, had their big bi-annual conference here in Seattle this week. As part of our ‘mint-view-custody-transfer’ process, we utilized the Niftmint application to facilitate providing Conference Attendance NFTs to all attendees. Not only this, but we added functionality to create Conference Attendance NFTs for all previous events. This way, when users sign up and create their account, the appropriate NFTs are minted for them, representing all past and present conference attendances. These NFTs are then assigned to the user, so they are all visible in the Niftmint custodial wallet. Then, if the user chooses, they can leave their NFTs in their custodial wallet and keep receiving/viewing NFTs from events/actions/whatever future items might earn/unlock them NFTs, or they can trasnfer them out to their own personal wallets as they’re unlocked. The blockchain-interaction levels are all built on top of Harmony.
Below are examples from 1Wallet and Metamask appropriately displaying all 6 Harmony-based Conference Attendance NFTs:

Alongside all of this, we’ve built in token gating functionality that works with for both custodial and non-custodial users of Niftmint, and are standing up the private, token gated telegram community for exclusive TF Conference, Event, and Membership bonuses to holders of the TF Conference NFTs.
Users are slowly beginning to claim their conference NFTs (as the conference ended on Wednesday), and the NFTs are being minted live as the users create their accounts.
Below is a demonstration of the Niftmint web application for the TF Conference. In this video, the user has earned all 6 Conference Attendance NFTs, as they’ve attended all 6 conferences. If they only attended the 6th conference, they would only have the 6th Conference Attendance NFT in their custodial wallet. If they attended the 2nd and 5th, they’d have the 2nd and 5th NFTs in their custodial wallet, and so on.
@Jacksteroo, @cheualx, @jbeltran - If you would like to experience this process yourselves, please let me know. Once you sign up for an account, I’ll whitelist attribution of all 6 conference NFTs (or whatever ones you would like attributed), and initiate the mint-custody-view process for your accounts. This process is more automated for the users that purchased tickets to the conference/attended. The only caveat being I will remove the functionality of transferring the NFTs out of our custodial wallet (since this is a demonstration for you, and the NFTs weren’t actually earned via Conference Attendance)
At this point, we’d like to claim the first 2 milestones of the grant. We’re continuing to work with brands and bring the eCommerce integration fully live on branded websites - the rate determining step here is brands fully committing to selling some level of NFTs on their website (the application has been live for Conferences and giveaways, and we do have both fiat and crypto-based payment functionality for the application once an organization wants to start ‘selling’ the NFTs).
Glad to have succeeded in the first major steps of what we’re building and bringing to the Harmony community, and we hope you’re all as excited about these developments as we are!
Onwards and upwards.
